Why Entrepreneurship & Entrepreneurship Networks

Few of my schoolmates get upset about the fact that I work on and promote Entrepreneurship and various Entrepreneurship Networks in the alumni groups. Reason is simple, this universe is a network (explained in details in my book, https://networkquoteint,org so most of what we do, enjoy, live, achieve is only as part of our being part of the “network” or “community” or “family”.

We is greater than ME , Hence I dedicate very high percentage of my time in creating, curating communities especially Entrepreneurship Networks like
https://yen2020.org ; https://bharatnetwork.org ; http://wen1.org or alumni networks like https://www.iimsociety.org or IIM Families & Friends or Sainik Schools Families & Friends

Tech Platforms like Facebook, Google, Linkedin, Telegram, WhatsApp have made it possible for more than half of the world connect with each other and that’s an absolutely transformative opportunity to make the world into one GLocal Digital Family besides the Physical Family

Why Entrepreneurship Is Important to the Economy

By SHOBHIT SETH Updated Jul 22, 2019

Entrepreneurs are frequently thought of as national assets to be cultivated, motivated, and remunerated to the greatest possible extent. Great entrepreneurs have the ability to change the way we live and work. If successful, their innovations may improve standards of living, and in addition to creating wealth with entrepreneurial ventures, they also create jobs and contribute to a growing economy.https://tpc.googlesyndication.com/safeframe/1-0-37/html/container.html

Entrepreneurship is thus important for a number of reasons, from promoting social change to driving innovation.

Entrepreneurs Spur Economic Growth

New products and services created by entrepreneurs can produce a cascading effect, where it stimulates related businesses or sectors that need to support the new venture, furthering economic development.

For example, a few information technology companies made up the IT industry in India during the 1990s. The industry quickly expanded and many other sectors benefited from it. Businesses in associated industries—such as call center operations, network maintenance companies, and hardware providers—flourished.

Education and training institutes nurtured a new class of IT workers who were offered better, high-paying jobs. Infrastructure development organizations and even real estate companies capitalized on this growth as workers migrated to cities where employment was growing.

Similarly, future development efforts in underdeveloped countries require robust logistics support, capital investments, and a qualified workforce. From the highly qualified programmer to the construction worker, entrepreneurship benefits a large part of the economy.

Entrepreneurs Add to National Income

Entrepreneurial ventures help generate new wealth. Existing businesses may remain confined to existing markets and may hit the glass ceiling in terms of income. New and improved products, services or technology from entrepreneurs enable new markets to be developed and new wealth to be created.

Additionally, increased employment and higher earnings contribute to better national income in the form of higher tax revenue and higher government spending. This revenue can be used by the government to invest in other, struggling sectors and human capital. Although it may make a few existing players redundant, the government can soften the blow by redirecting surplus wealth to retrain workers.https://e754ab033093610c12da44796b9d90ae.safeframe.googlesyndication.com/safeframe/1-0-37/html/container.html

Fast Fact

According to Babson College, there are 25 million entrepreneurs in the U.S.

Entrepreneurs Create Social Change

Through offering unique goods and services, entrepreneurs break away from tradition and reduce dependence on obsolete systems and technologies. This results in an improved quality of life, improved morale, and greater economic freedom.

For example, the water supply in a water-scarce region will, at times, forces people to stop working to collect water. This will impact their business, productivity, and income. Imagine an innovative and automatic pump that can fill people’s water containers automatically. This type of innovation ensures people are able to focus on their jobs without worrying about a basic necessity like water. More time to devote to work translates to economic growth.

For a more contemporary example, smartphones and apps have revolutionized work and play across the globe. Smartphones are not exclusive to wealthy countries or people. As the growth of the smartphone market continues, technological entrepreneurship can have a profound, long-lasting impact on the world.

Moreover, the globalization of technology means entrepreneurs in lesser-developed countries have access to the same tools as their counterparts in richer countries. They also have the advantage of a lower cost of living, so a young entrepreneur from an underdeveloped country can compete with a multi-million-dollar existing product from a developed country.

Community Development

Entrepreneurs regularly nurture ventures by other like-minded individuals. They also invest in community projects and provide financial support to local charities. This enables further development beyond their own ventures.

Some famous entrepreneurs, such as Bill Gates, have used their money to finance good causes, from education to public health. The qualities that make one an entrepreneur are the same qualities that help motivate entrepreneurs to pay it forward.


  • Entrepreneurship is important as it has the ability to improve standards of living and create wealth, not only for the entrepreneurs, but also for related businesses. 
  • Entrepreneurs also help drive change with innovation, where new and improved products enable new markets to be developed. 
  • Economy wise, higher earnings thanks to entrepreneurship can help boost national income and tax revenue. 
  • Entrepreneurs contribute in other ways as well, such as investing in community projects and supporting local charities. 
  • Too much entrepreneurship (i..e, high self-employment) can be detrimental to economic development.

Is All Entrepreneurship Good?

Are there any drawbacks to cultivating entrepreneurs and entrepreneurship? Is there a limit to the number of entrepreneurs a society can hold?

Italy may provide an example of a place where high levels of self-employment have proved to be inefficient for economic development. Research has shown that Italy has experienced large negative impacts on the growth of its economy because of self-employment. There may be truth in the old saying, “too many chefs and not enough cooks spoil the soup.” 

The Role of Government

Regulation plays a crucial role in nurturing entrepreneurship. Unregulated entrepreneurship may lead to unwanted social outcomes including unfair market practices, pervasive corruption, and criminal activity.

Findings from the United Nations University also indicate the possible implications of “over-nurturing” entrepreneurship. European economist Wim Naudé argues that “while entrepreneurship may raise economic growth and material welfare, it may not always result in improvements in non-material welfare (or happiness). Promotion of happiness is increasingly seen as an essential goal.

Paradoxically, a significantly high number of entrepreneurs may lead to fierce competition and loss of career choices for individuals. With too many entrepreneurs, levels of aspirations usually rise. Owing to the variability of success in entrepreneurial ventures, the scenario of having too many entrepreneurs may also lead to income inequality, making citizens more unhappy.

The Bottom Line

The relationship between entrepreneurship and economic development is important to understand for policymakers and business owners. Understanding the benefits and drawbacks of entrepreneurship allows a balanced approach to nurturing entrepreneurship to be taken, which can result in a positive economic and societal impact.SPONSORED

Masked people

I am part of few WhatsApp group and admin of few. Last week I had a very disturbing experience when few members of the group would refuse to introduce themselves in the group, They would make lame excuses of privacy. My response, your privacy ends when you are in public. If you prefer privacy then stay indoors, don’t participate in public groups.

One of the persons from this otherwise very wonderful group would refuse to introduce himself/herself in spite of many requests. Well, having built and managed communities since school days,, I have also learnt few lessons on how to deal with such stakers, spammers. I created a separate group called “Quarantined” and moved these nameless numbers to that group. Those who introduced themselves they were added back to the main group from Quarantine.

What do you think of this strategy ? How do you deal with such stalkers, spammers ?

I only knew you from second hand stories in family or via media and your films. As is my nature, I take lot of pride in accomplishments and struggles of everyone I know and especially those I know via a shared relationship. I know you as classmate of Abhishek (now Jeevi) , a very bright Patna kid who pursued his dreams. You will be remembered by all your fans and all whose life you touched.

Television (2008–11)

In 2008, the casting team of Balaji Telefilms saw Rajput’s personality and acting talent while he was on stage for one of Ekjute’s plays.[30] They invited him to audition for them and Rajput landed the role of Preet Juneja in Kis Desh Mein Hai Meraa Dil.[31] His character was killed quite early in the show, but he was such a popular character with the viewers that he was brought back for the series finale in the form of a spirit, looking on as his family celebrates after going through difficult times.[32]

In June 2009, Rajput began starring in Pavitra Rishta as Manav Deshmukh, a serious and mature character working as a mechanic to support his family. His work in this serial received wide appreciation, and Rajput received three major television awards for best male actor and most popular actor.[30] This performance was his breakthrough and gave him a stepping stone into films.[33] Initially when producer Ekta Kapoor cast him as lead for Pavitra Rishta while playing the parallel lead in Kis Desh Mein Hai Meraa Dil, Zee TV did not accept him. However, Kapoor convinced them to accept him.[34]

In May 2010, Rajput joined the dance reality show Zara Nachke Dikha 2.[35] He had already proven his acting talents by winning awards for his performance in Pavitra Rishta, and he wanted to establish that he had good dancing skills and could be trained further. In Zara Nachke Dikha, Rajput was a part of the Mast Kalandar Boys Team. He did the shooting for both Pavitra Rishta and Zara Nachke Dikha 2 at the same time.[35] On the Mother’s Day special episode, his team dedicated a performance to his mother, who had died in 2002.[36]

In December 2010, Rajput participated in another dance-based reality show, Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa 4, where he was paired with choreographer Shampa Sonthalia.[37]

In October 2011, Rajput decided to quit Pavitra Rishta to pursue a filmmaking course abroad, and in November 2011, Rajput quit the series and was replaced by Hiten Tejwani.[38] However, in October 2014, Tejwani paved way for Rajput who appeared in the final episode aired on 25 October 2014 as Manav.[39][40]

Film career (2013–20)

From left to right: Rajput, Rajkumar RaoAbhishek Kapoor and Amit Sadh at the promotion of Kai Po Che! in 2013

Rajput auditioned for Abhishek Kapoor‘s Kai Po Che! and was selected to play one of the three leads, along with Rajkumar Rao and Amit Sadh. Based on the Chetan Bhagat novel The 3 Mistakes of My Life, the film proved to be a critical and commercial success. His portrayal of Ishaan Bhatt, an ex-district level cricketer who is a victim of politics in the cricketing selection fraternity, was praised.[41] Critic Rajeev Masand wrote: “…it’s Sushant Singh Rajput, making his film debut as Ishaan, who it’s hard to take your eyes off. The actor has an indescribable presence and it’s clear from his confidence and distinct likeability that a star is born.”[42]Rajput with Vaani Kapoor and Parineeti Chopra promoting Shuddh Desi Romance on Comedy Nights with Kapil in 2013

His second movie was Shuddh Desi Romance, alongside Parineeti Chopra and Vaani Kapoor. Directed by Maneesh Sharma and produced by Yash Raj Films, the film deals with the subject of live-in relationships and was completely filmed in Jaipur, Rajasthan. Taran Adarsh from Bollywood Hungama praised Rajput’s performance, saying: “After leaving a tremendous impression in his first Hindi outing, Sushant Singh Rajput… brings a lot of freshness with his unpretentious and spontaneous act.”[43] Sukanya Verma from Rediff stated: “After a dynamic debut in Kai Po Che!, Rajput channelises his abundant energy to convey the childlike ineptitude of a man who wears his heart on a sleeve.”[44] Sushant’s next role was in Rajkumar Hirani‘s 2014 film PK. Although his role was relatively minor, the film gave him the opportunity to work with Aamir Khan and Anushka Sharma. Upon its release, the film proved to be the one of the highest-grossing Indian films.[45][46]

In 2015, Rajput’s sole release was Dibakar Banerjee‘s mystery thriller Detective Byomkesh Bakshy! (2015), in which he portrayed detective Byomkesh Bakshi, created by Bengali writer Sharadindu Bandyopadhyay. The film was produced jointly by Yash Raj Films and Banerjee’s own film production company Dibakar Banerjee Productions. Set in Kolkata in the 1940s,[47] the film was released on 3 April 2015.[48][49]Rajput with Kriti Sanon promoting Raabta in 2017

In 2016, he appeared in Neeraj Pandey‘s biographical sports film M.S. Dhoni: The Untold Story, in lead role of Indian cricketer Mahendra Singh Dhoni. The film was a critical and commercial success, becoming one of the highest-grossing Bollywood films of 2016. Rajput’s performance was widely praised by critics[9][10] and earned him his first nomination for the Filmfare Award for Best Actor.[50]

In 2017, he appeared in Dinesh Vijan‘s Raabta, co-starring Kriti Sanon.[51][52]

In 2018, he appeared in Kedarnath, a love story set in the backdrop of the 2013 floods in Uttarakhand, co-starring Sara Ali Khan.[53] In this film he played the role of Mansoor Khan, a Kashmiri young man.[54]

In 2019, he appeared in Abhishek Chaubey’s Sonchiriya opposite Bhumi Pednekar.[55][56] He appeared in Nitesh Tiwari‘s Chhichhore opposite Shraddha Kapoor that released on 6 September 2019. Later that year, he starred in Drive alongside Jacqueline Fernandez, which was released on Netflix.[57]

Projects cancelled

In 2016, it was announced that Rajput would appear in a science-fiction space film, Chanda Mama Door Ke, along with R. Madhavan.[58][59][60] He later withdrew from the film, citing date conflicts.[61] In 2020, he starred in Mukesh Chhabra‘s remake of The Fault in Our Stars titled Dil Bechara. The film was slated to be released in May of that year but was postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.[62] He was also set to essay 12 real-life characters, including political strategist Chanakya, poet Rabindranath Tagore and former Indian president APJ Abdul Kalam, in a biopic series on Stories of India.[63][64]

TiEcon 2020 Speakers

Like may previous years, TiEcon 2020 is also shaping up well with a great line up of investors, entrepreneurs, speakes, Looking forward to it. Even with the disruption of Covid19 pandemic, had not dampened our spirits and the organizing team, volunteers are working diligently and passionately via online events, named as Road to TiEcon
Will encourage all my friends, alumni to start registering as sponsors, attendees or volunteers.

I am voluneering with AI/ML Track besides the Marketing Team being led by Anand Akela who is Product Makreting Leader of NUTANIX & Content Chair of MARKETING AND SALES

Managing Expectations

Siddharth Gautam (Gautam Buddha) learnt and shared this insight or enlightenment after decades of mediation at the Bodhi Tree in Bodh Gaya and exploration that root cause of suffering is desire/expectation.

I have also learnt that from my experiences in many of my non-profit social ventures as well as business,

Some of the most enthusiastic volunteers or team members or Co-founders join the organization. with high energy. They also bring lot of energy, ideas and want to make things happen. Seems great. But then often these volunteer contributors or colleagues seem to forget that the org was running fine before they joined and thinking of team or the organization is also equally important.

The founders have a vision and they co-create, curate, nurture and build an organization. As a new team member our inputs are valuable. However we shouldn’t discard all the great work being done by those who have served the organization or built the organization before we joined. If we see mutual value then let us collobarate and strengthen the relationship, If priorities have changed or there seems to be a difference of value systems or conflict of priorities then have a conversation, resolve it or else part ways and move on.

I have connected and helped few entrepreneurs as well friends, family and alumni via various entrepreneurship and alumni organizations. However, often see lack of clarity on expectations and that causes disappointment and conflicts. Initial courtship or dating is needed among entrepreneurs & investors, employees & employers to know mutual values and synergies. Sometime a new person in team wants to own the team or be the captain, That is not always possible Maybe the team had many more equally or ore deserving members. Hustle for our seat at the table but should not get disappointed if the team doesn’t give us everything we want. We need to earn our seat at the table by contributions over a period of time and try to become indispensable to the extent possible,

My experience in Corporate Roles with GE, Genpact, R1, Infosys & Virtusa as well as co-founder of non-profits like
Bihar Entrepreneurs Network, 2011
Jharkhand Entrepreneurs Network 2015
Bharat Entrepreneurs Network & WEN 2017
IIM Society 2004
IIM Family 2014
as well as volunteering for TiE, MJF, Rajiv Circle, IIMA IIMAAA, FOG SV, & many others have given me some good exposure to the mindset, motivations and drivers of the founders, volunteers and team.

Often it’s driven by motivations like charity , giving back, name, fame, wealth and often relationships. I have also seen that non-profit volunteer orgs have more politics or power struggle than business since the expectations are not clear. In a job it is simple, Salary, Bonus, Equity but in a volunteering roles it gets tricky. I will share about experiences with example in my next blog or add to this blog.

TiEcon 2020

I have been volunteering for TiE since many years. Used to occasionally participate in TiE events in NY / NJ as well when I was in East Coast. I moved to San Jose CA (SF Bay Area) in 2015 and got involved very closely as a volunteer. I have not taken the TiE Chartered membership yet since my own ventures couldn’t justify the annual fees, Another reason is that as one of the most passionate and regular volunteers contributed more than fair share already in few ways. Few years back led the TiE Young Entrepreneurs (TYE) program for middle and high school students. My role was mainly to be one of the Volunteer Program Managers for TYE and bring wildly successful entrepreneurs and VCs including Founding members like Kanwal Rekhi, Suhas Patil , Prabhu Goel and few other successful entrepreneurs, investors.

This year I accepted the role of Track Manager for AI?ML in TiEcon 2020. We have many accomplished entrepreneurs/leaders like Mini Suri & Lalit Gujare as Track Chairs. I was happy to accept the role of Track Manager. The Chairs are expected to bring the speakers, sponsors and lead the Track and myself as the Track Manager supposed to help the chairs in co-ordination. We also have few student volunteers to support us besides the Staff Members of TiE , https://sv.tie.org/team/ like
Neha Mishra, Senior Director, TiE SV
Nihar Patwardhan, Program Manager, TiE SV
Vanie Suresh, Manager, Finance & Charter Membership , TiE SV
Gennyvie Montiel, Manager, Business Development, TiE SV

What is most exciting about TIE & TiEcon is that the team also operates like entrepreneurs and we responded to the Covid19 pandemic by switching the much awaited 2 days event at Santa Clara Convention Center to a Global & Digital event. I am also volunteering with Anand Akela who is leading TiE Marketing volunteer team for many years. In his day job Anand is Product Marketing Leader for Nutanix. One of the innovative ways TiE team responded is by organizing a series of online events leading to TiEcon 2020 as Road to TiEcon. This TiEcon was very special to me for another reason. One of most iconic leaders Indra Nooyi as Grand Keynote speaker. She happens to be an IIMC alumni so am doubly proud as an IIMA aumni, Yes we both are IIM alumni. I also happen to be one of the co-founders & Director of IIM Society.

Quoting Details about TIE & TiEcon from Wikipedia instead of relying on my own memory
TiE was founded in 1992 by the trio of an Indian-American businessman and angel investor, Kanwal Rekhi; an MIT professor and founder of Cirrus LogicSuhas Patil; and the founder of Gateway Design AutomationPrabhu Goel


TiE has 60 chapters in 17 countries. It holds several events throughout the year to promote networking and raise capital for start-ups. TiE Global Summit II and TiE Inflect in Silicon Valley are the organization’s flagship events. Besides the flagship events, the organization connects with its members through a series of annual gatherings, such as TiECON.


TiECON is an annual TiE event. The March 2018 TiECON was held in Mohali. It was organized by the Chandigarh Chapter President, Alok Ramsisaria, and Executive Director, Harpreet Minhas, at the Indian School of Business. Approximately 40 start-ups participated and a cumulative funding of ₹36 million (US $554,400) was raised. Prominent attendees at the event included the state’s Chief MinisterAmarinder Singh, and the British High Commissioner to IndiaDominic Asquith.


RSS is the world’s largest volunteer organization based in India/Bharat/Hindustan which often gets maligned by many misinformed haters who are otherwise very well educated or reasonable people. Below are few fake/false allegations that people spread via WhatsApp. I also ge these often  from few people so thought will answer them point by point. I will answer each other them but below is the charge sheet or questions from one such person who happens to be a Sainik School Alumni on WhatsApp

छद्म राष्ट्रवादी संघी भाजपाई तथा विवेकशून्य अंधभक्तों मोदिए

छद्म राष्ट्रवादी संघी भाजपाई तथा विवेकशून्य अंधभक्तों मोदिए कृपया निम्न सवालों का जवाब दें–

(1) आरएसएस ने आज़ादी की लड़ाई क्यों नही लड़ी ?

आरएसएस की स्थापना 1925 में Dr केशव हेडगेवार ने किया ताकि हिन्दू समाज की एकता और अनुशाशन को सुनिशिचत किया जा सके,. डॉक्टर हेडगेवार ने पहले कांग्रेस के कार्यकर्ता के रूप में कार्य किया लेकिन

डा° केशव राव बलीराम हेडगेवार (Keshav Baliram Hedgewar)(मराठी: डॉ॰केशव बळीराम हेडगेवार; जन्म : 1 अप्रैल 1889 – मृत्यु : 21 जून 1940)[1]राष्ट्रीय स्वयंसेवक संघ के संस्थापक एवं प्रकाण्ड क्रान्तिकारी थे। इनका जन्म [2][3] नागपुर के एक गरीब ब्राह्मण परिवार में हिन्दू वर्ष प्रतिपदा के दिन हुआ था। वे राष्ट्रीय स्वयंसेवक संघ के संस्थापक थे[4], बचपन से ही क्रांतिकारी प्रवृति के थे और उन्हें अंग्रेज शासको से घृणा थी | अभी स्कूल में ही पढ़ते थे कि अंग्रेज इंस्पेक्टर के स्कूल में निरिक्षण के लिए आने पर केशव राव (Keshav Baliram Hedgewar) ने अपने कुछ सहपाठियों के साथ उनका “वन्दे मातरम्” जयघोष से स्वागत किया जिस पर वह बिफर गया और उसके आदेश पर केशव राव को स्कूल से निकाल दिया गया[5]| तब उन्होंने मैट्रिक तक अपनी पढाई पूना के नेशनल स्कूल में पूरी की |

(6) 1942 में असहयोग आंदोलन का बहिष्कार करता है संघ ऐसा पत्र ब्रिटिश गवर्मेंट को क्यों लिखा अगर ये पत्र न लिखते तो देश 1942 में आज़ाद हो जाता ?
In the last Lok Sabha elections (2014) Congress Vice-President Rahul Gandhi made allegations on RSS. There is often a false criticism that the Sangh did not take part in the freedom struggle. They must not be knowing the reality, hence this article. After the establishment of the RSS, Dr Hedgewar had told the Sangh swayamsewaks that after giving 1 hour to the Sangh shakha, there is no harm in doing work of any party according to their wish. Continuing the same principle, Golwalkar Guruji told to take part in the freedom struggle which was inspired by Mahatma Gandhi.But not by taking the banner of the RSS in hand, but by wearing Khadi-topi andKurta-Pyjama.

Note here that the RSS was founded in 1925. It was barely in its infancy and very small in those days. The focus needed to be on strengthening and growing the RSS as it could have been easily crushed by the many Opponents- British, Congress and Muslim League in those days. And yet, the RSS participated in the freedom struggle. Compare this with the Congress founded in 1885. The Congress first demanded full Independence (Poorna Swarajya) for India in December 1929, a full 44 years after its foundation. Its demand in the 1920s, till the 1929 Lahore Session was only dominion status for India. And in its initial years, in the 1880s and 1890s, the Congress leaders openly stated the British Rule in India as the Providential Gift. It took the Congress many years (at least 20 years) to raise a strong foundation, though it was formed with merger of many regional conferences, unlike RSS which was founded from zero. And yet, the Congress (which ceased to be same since 1969 when it became Congress (I) with a split in the party) has lied about true patriots i.e. RSS and hid its own record of its first 44 years, particularly, the first 22 years.

More than half the Sangh swayamsewaks had taken part in the freedom struggle. Very few people know this truth. Because publicity is not in the Sangh’s nature at all.Khadi-clad swayamsewaks suffered the British Police’s bullets as well as lathis.

If RSS did not participate in the freedom struggle, what were the Communists and others were doing? The RSS and Communist party of India came in existence almost at the same time (in 1925). While the RSS busied itself in organizing the Hindu society to achieve freedom, the Communists continued to support the British and defame leaders like Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose. It is on record that during the World War II so long as the Russians were not cooperating with the Allied forces, the Communists in India were against them. For them, the British and Americans were ‘imperialist forces’. But the moment Stalin joined hands with the Allies; the same Communists shamelessly started singing praises for the British.

When Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose went out of India and launched anti-British movement of Azad Hind Fauz, these communists made a volte face and abused Netaji as “agent of Hitler” and “Lapdog of Tojo”. They even opposed the 1942 movement and spied on the freedom fighters by providing information to the British rulers. And now they question the role of RSS in the freedom struggle? The Communists had also supported the Muslim League’s demand for Pakistan.

Dr Hedgewar a born patriot

The founder of RSS Dr Keshav Baliram Hedgewar was a born patriot. When he was a primary student in the Neil City School, he refused to accept the sweets distributed in the schools on the 60th coronation day of Queen Victoria and when his elder brother asked he replied: “Our Bhonsla dynasty was liquidated by these Britishers. How can we participate in these imperial celebrations?” This instinctive patriotism was in his personality blossomed further with full radiance and formed the bedrock of the RSS. In High school, Dr Hedgewar was expelled from the school for making all students say ‘Vande Mataram’ in school during an Inspection visit by a British authority. He refused to apologize, and instead preferred rustication. At the age of 18, in 1907, he made and threw a bomb on a local police station also.

Dr Hedgewar was very closely associated with the revolutionaries when he was at Kolkata for his degree in medical education. His deep contacts with the members of the Anusheelan Samiti were well described by one of his colleagues Ramlal Vajpayee in his autobiography: “With the financial help from Sri Dajisaheb Buty, Keshavrao Hedgewar, founder of RSS, was sent to Calcutta more with the object of receiving training for revolutionary work under the supervision of Sri Pulin Bihari Das, rather than prosecuting higher studies”.

Young Keshavrao was introduced to Anusheelan Samiti and soon he became one of its inner circle members. When he came back to Nagpur after obtaining a degree in medicine in 1917, he plunged himself into organizing the revolutionary activities in the Central Indian region with his close associates like Bhauji Kawre and Appaji Joshi of Wardha.

However, the eventual collapse of the revolutionary movement Dr Hedgewar was forced to take recourse to other means of achieving freedom and since the Indian National Congress was the most powerful public movement, he joined it. Within the Congress he along with his friends formed Nagpur National Union. During the 1920 AICC session at Nagpur he was in charge of the volunteer force. The Nagpur National Union submitted a resolution to the subjects committee which besides demanding the Congress to declare “complete independence as it sole objective” said: “It is the aim of the Congress to strive to establish democracy in India and to liberate all nations from the grip of capitalist countries”. Almost 10 years before the Congress first demanded Full Independence in December 1929, RSS founder Dr Hedgewar had urged the party to do so in 1920 itself.

The steering committee that deliberated on the resolution did not find it worthy of presenting to the AICC and eventually rejected the same. But the Modern Review of Calcutta in its March 21 issue commented on this resolution: “This resolution merited greater attention in the steering committee”. Dr Hedgewar actively participated in the non-cooperation movement launched by Mahatma Gandhi in 1921 along with his friends and suffered incarceration for the same. His defense in the court of Judge Smelly was described as the ‘more seditious than his earlier speeches’. He was given 1 year Rigorous Imprisonment by Judge Smelly. Such a strong freedom-fighter he was, that his defense in court was described as ‘More seditious than his earlier speeches’ for which he was undergoing trial.

Jungle Satyagraha :

Dr Hedgewar founded the RSS on Vijayadashami Day in 1925 with an objective of injecting the spirit of nationalism, patriotism and creating a strong, vibrant organized India that would lead the world community once again. Freeing the motherland from the foreign yoke was reflected in the oath of RSS members. But he did not dissociate himself from the freedom movement. When Gandhiji launched ‘Salt Satyagraha’ or Dandi March on April 6, 1930, the RSS also did not stay aloof from it. By then Dr Hedgewar was unanimously named as ‘Sarsanghchalak’ of RSS. He volunteered to participate in this movement and before taking a plunge into it he delegated his authority to Dr L V Paranjape. This, when the Sangh was in its infancy. The Sangh started from hardly 10-15 members in 1925 and was hardly a force in 1930 having very few shakhas and members, and yet Dr Hedgewar preferred to be jailed in the Jungle Satyagraha for 9 months leaving the task of expanding the Sangh.

In the Central Provinces it was decided to break the forest laws to voice opposition to the British rule. A batch of RSS activists and Congress workers under the leadership of Dr Hedgewar proceeded towards the jungles of Yavatmal, some 150 km from Nagpur. On way at Pusad he gave a speech stating his philosophy of freedom. He said: “From polishing the boots of the Englishmen to hitting them hard on their heads with the same boots till they leave this country, all ways are equally logical in my view”. Later he offered ‘Jungle Satyagraha’ and sentenced to nine month jail term in Akola Jail. O

On December 31, 1929 on the banks of Ravi River the Congress at its historical Lahore session adopted a resolution demanding “Total Independence” and decided to observe January 26, 1930 as Independence Day. Dr Hedgewar had expected the same a decade ago from the Congress. He was naturally very happy and directed all the RSS shakhas to celebrate this day by hoisting the national flag and spreading the message of freedom.

By 1928 the RSS had 18 shakhas mostly confined to Nagpur and Wardha. The CP Congress (Marathi) was headed by Harekrishna (Appaji) Joshi who was the General Secretary of the provincial committee and was also the Sanghchalak of the Wardha unit of the RSS.

The RSS extended uninhibited support to the 1929 Congress resolution. It issued a circular to all the 37 shakhas, which stated: “This year the Congress has passed a resolution declaring complete Independence as its goal. The CWC has called upon the entire nation to celebrate Sunday the 26th of January 1930 as Independence Day. We of the Sangh are naturally immensely happy that the All India Congress has endorsed our goal of complete Independence. It is our duty to cooperate with any organisation working for this objective. It is therefore suggested that all Swayamsevaks of each shakha meet at 6 p.m. on Sunday the January 26, 1930 at respective Sanghasthans. After offering salutation to the Bhagwa Dhwaj, the concept of Independence and the reason why this ideal alone should be kept before every one should be explained. The function should conclude with an expression of congratulations to the Congress for having accepted the ideal of complete Independence.”

The Government in Central Provinces issued a circular prohibiting the government and local self government bodies servants to take part in RSS activities. The circular was based on the report of the intelligence department. Dr Hedgewar with his communicating and influencing skills created a mass opinion against the government move. Editorials were published in ‘Kesri’ of Pune, ‘Maharashtra’ and ‘The Hitavada’ of Nagpur criticizing the government. In the Assembly, this issue was discussed during the budget session and the government was defeated on the floor. Members of all political parties, including a Muslim Member M S Rehman, defended the RSS.

The anti-imperialist character of the RSS and its unconditional support to the Congress movement appalled the British administration which made the first serious attempt to suppress it soon after the civil disobedience movement died out.i

At the end of 1932 the Chief Minister of Central Province government, E. Gordan issued a circular prohibiting government employees and their wards from participating in or associating with the RSS on the plea that it was ‘political and communal organisation’.

In December 1933 its scope was extended to the employees and teachers of local bodies. The Government wanted to give it a communal colour since the Local Self-Government Minister was a Muslim. However, the Sangh did not make it a communal issue and targeted the colonial rule. During the budget session in March 1934, a member of the Council, V. D. Kolte, put up a cut motion against the government’s circular. This led to a four-hour discussion during which all the speakers appreciated the work and ideology of the RSS.

Shri Vithalbhai Patel presided over the RSS function at Nagpur in 1928. Shri Madan Mohan Malaviya visited the RSS shakha at Nagpur in 1929. Mahatma Gandhi himself visited a Sangh camp on December 25, 1934, at Wardha. He joined Shri Appaji Joshi, a renowned Congress leader of CP, in offering Pranam to the RSS flag. He held a lengthy conversation with Dr Hedgewar the next day and was impressed by the vision of the RSS.Subhash Chandra Bose and Syama Prasad Mookerjee visited Dr Hedgewar in 1940 and discussed plans for Independence.

A home department report in 1940 said: ‘The organisation is intensely anti-British and its tone is increasingly becoming militant.’ The CID report revealed that RSS volunteers were ‘introduced into various departments of government such as the army, navy, postal, telegraph, railway and administrative services in order that there may be no difficulty in capturing administrative departments when the time comes.’

The RSS Sarsanghchalak, Shri M. S. Golwalkar, who succeeded Shri Hedgewar after his death in 1940, suggested indoctrination of government employees and his speech in the Poona Officers Training Camp (OTC) of the RSS on May 3, 1942, was reported by the CID saying: ‘The Sangh resolved to stand on its own legs, not minding any opposition. It was not possible to get swaraj by begging it from foreigners and this could only be achieved by strength.’

RSS & 1942 Movement :

Unfortunately Dr Hedgewar passed away in June 1940 handing over the baton of leadership to a relatively young M S Golwalkar, popularly known as Shri Guruji. It was during his tenure that the RSS was face to face with the famous 1942 “Quit India” movement and the later day events that led to the partition of the country and finally independence. Allegations are even now hurled at RSS for “assuming a passive role” or not participating in the 1942 movement. But the reality is altogether different and the detractors of RSS either do not know it or they don’t want to understand it.

The Congress under the Mahatma’s leadership announced the launch of 1942 Quit India movement on August 9 without making enough preparations for the same. The British knew of it and arrested all the top Congress leaders in one place before the agitation could be launched. Naturally, the absence of any leadership took the wind out of the sails of this movement. Still, following the footsteps of RSS founder in regards to such mass movements, many RSS swayamsevaks plunged into the agitation. To cite an example, some of the swayamsevaks succeeded in establishing a parallel government at Chimur-Ashti in Vidarbha region. Some of them later faced the gallows for this rebellion. Some RSS workers damaged the Delhi-Muzafarnagar railway line while some faced bullets trying to unfurl the tricolor atop the tehsil office in Mewan in Meerut district in UP.

Many of the prominent underground leaders of the 1942 movement were provided safe shelters by the RSS activists. Aruna Asaf Ali, Jay Prakash Narayan were housed in Delhi Sanghchalak Lala Hansraj Gupta; Achyut Patwardhan and Sane Guruji were closeted at the residence of Pune Sanghchalak Bhausaheb Deshmukh. Krantiveer Nana Patil was sheltered at Aundh Sanghchalak Pt. S D Satvalekar’s house.

The 1943 report of the intelligence department on RSS said in most clear terms: “The ulterior objective of the RSS is to drive away the British from India and free the country”.

Dr Bhagwan Das’ Observation :

It is surprising that a foreign power was able to assess and understand the objective of RSS and the role it played towards its fulfillment clearly. But our secular leaders and their leftist co-passengers failed to do so. I cannot resist myself from quoting Bharat Ratna Dr Bhawan Das who wrote about the role of RSS swayamsevaks in thwarting the plan of the Muslim League. The League planned to annihilate all the prominent Congress leaders in one go. Dr Bhagwan Das wrote on October 1, 1948: “I know for sure that RSS volunteers have informed Jawahar Lal Nehru and Sardar Patel well in advance about the plan of Muslim League under which the League had planned for armed rebellion and annihilating the Ministers of the Government of India and the senior officers, unfurl the Pakistani flag atop Lal Quilla, and establish their government in India.

“Had these patriotic and sincere youths not informed Nehru and Patel in time, the entire country today would have become Pakistan; lakhs of Hindus would have been butchered and more than that would have been converted to Islam forcibly and India would have become slave once again. What does it indicate? Clearly, it suggests that our government must utilize the nationalist power of lakhs of RSS swayamsevaks instead of subordinating it”.

It was again irony of fate that Dr Bhagwandas wrote these words at a time when thousands of RSS workers were languishing in jails of independent India for the crime they never dreamt of committing in their wildest ever dreams—the assassination of the Mahatma. The charge was never proved any court of law, and by any of the enquiry commission set up by the government. But it is still used widely by these seculars, leftists and their likes to malign the RSS.

The incident of Chimur

When an agitation was on in Chimur, a place in Vidarbha, during the hoisting of the flag, the tricolour stopped mid-way. A youth with khadicame forward. He raised the flag to the top. At that moment the police resorted to ruthless firing on him. His body was pierced. He collapsed life-less on the ground. He was a Sangh swayamsewak.

The agitation of Mahatma Gandhi had started with a lot of energy. But by 8th August 1942 Mahatma Gandhi, Jawaharlal Nehru, Sardar Patel and all other top leaders were arrested and imprisoned in jail, and as a result the movement became directionless. What should workers remaining outside (the jail) do? Where should they go underground? Shri Guruji had made this facility as well, with foresight.

Aruna Asaf Ali, who was honoured with the title “Bayalis ki Bijli” (Literally, ‘Lightning of 1942’) in an interview to Delhi’s Hindi daily ‘Hindusthan’ in 1967 said: “After the 1942 movement became directionless after the arrest of the top leaders, I was underground at the house of RSS’s Delhi Prant Sanghachalak Lala Hansraj Gupta. He gave me shelter for 10-15 days and made excellent arrangement for my security. Lalaji did not let the servants and guards of his house get any idea about this. An underground worker should not stay at one place for long, so I took theghagra and chunari given by Lalaji’s wife on my head, covering my face so that no one would recognize me, went away from there to another place doing Bhangra in a procession (Baraat).” Aruna Asaf Ali further said: “All top leaders were in jail. There was no arrangement of giving direction to those who were outside jail. Hence everyone took his independent decision. Hence it will be wrong to say that Hindusthan got freedom due to the 1942 movement.”

Delhi’s Suruchi Prakashan has mentioned in the book “RSS and Freedom Movement” written by Chittaranjan that when Vedamurti Pandit Shripad Damodar Satwalekar was the Sanghachalak of Aundh, he had given shelter at his house for many days to the Father of the ‘Parallel Government’, Krantiveer Nana Patil. Nana Patil’s associate Kisanveer stayed at the house of the Sanghachalak of Wai, Dattopant Gokhale. Socialist leader Achyutrao Patwardhan had lived alternately at the houses of many swayamsewaks. A strong critic of RSS, Gandhian Sane Guruji had stayed secretly at the house of the Pune Sanghachalak of RSS, Bhausaheb Deshmukh.

Many workers of the Congress Committee of Solapur were given shelter by the Sanghachalak and other swayamsewaks. From calling doctor and taking utmost care when someone fell ill, to lawyer swayamsewaks fighting cases of underground activists fearlessly and free of charge in court, all things were done. It should be accepted that the Sangh swayamsewaks’ patriotism and morality-based, disciplined lifestyle is unquestionable.

The 1942 movement being directionless, strategy-less and lacking uniformity was crushed by the British Government. What Shri Guruji had told Sangh swayamsewaks and Sanghchalaks only proved that the Sangh considers opponents as also ‘Our people’. Foresightedness was also proven.

In 1947, the RSS had played a major role in Kashmir’s merger with India. The then RSS pracharak in Kashmir, Balraj Madhok had listened to Sheikh Abdullah’s speech in Srinagar in October 1947 and had met Sardar Patel and many others and given them vital information. The then RSS chief M S Golwalkar had played a major role in convincing Maharaja Harisingh to merge with India. Kedarnath Sahni also played a major role. The volunteers of RSS also played a part, they defended the Srinagar airport until the Army arrived to begin recapturing Kashmir from Pakistani infiltrators.They helped build Jammu airport and widened the Srinagar airport. They crossed the Ravi river at Madhopur, carrying ammunition on their backs to keep it dry. In some places they also helped the soldiers clear the mines laid by the Pakistanis.

In 1954, young men of the Azad Gomatak Dal attacked and directly captured Dadra and Nagar Haveli. RSS men were a large part of this Azad Gomantak Dal. Many RSS workers sacrificed their lives in this successful attack in 1954. RSS members Raja Wakankar and Nana Kajrekar played a major role. In 1955, RSS leaders demanded the end of Portuguese rule in Goa and its integration into India. When Prime Minister of India, Jawaharlal Nehru refused to obtain it by armed intervention, RSS leader Jagannath Rao Joshi led the satyagraha agitation straight into Goa itself. He was imprisoned with his followers by the Portuguese police. The peaceful protests continued but met with severe repressions. On 15 August 1955, the Portuguese police opened fire on the satyagrahis, killing thirty or so people.

In 1962, China attacked India. The RSS played a major role in helping the government voluntarily for the sake of the nation. Some RSS members went to the border areas to fight with the Indian Army and gave their lives. Around 43 such men were martyred. The role of the RSS in this war and the sacrifice made by the martyrs melted the heart of even the most die-hard RSS critic, Jawaharlal Nehru. This is why Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru had also invited Sangh swayamsewaks to take part in the Republic Day Parade of 1963 in full uniform and the swayamsewaks had done a very disciplined route-march. Have the critics of the Sangh forgotten this? At least Congress people should read history and then use their brain.

The history of the RSS, spanning 22 years before India’s freedom is one of active participation in the anti-colonial struggle and unconditional co-operation not only with the Congress but also any other group committed to the liberation of the motherland. The ‘Pratigya’ (Pledge) of the RSS used to contain words ‘Desh ko swatantra kar‘ (Freeing the country) till Independence.

(11) जब देश आज़ाद हुआ 15 अगस्त 1947 को संघ के लोग राष्ट्रध्वज तिरँगे को पेरो में कुचल रहे थे तिरँगा जला रहे थे क्यों ?

(12) संघ के स्वयंसेवक अटल बिहारी बाजपाई ने क्रन्तिकारी लीलाधर बाजपई के खिलाफ क्यों गवाही दी जिससे उन्हें 2 वर्ष का कारावास हुआ ?

(13) पिछड़ा दलित आदिवासी भी संघी हे तो नासिक के काला राम मंदिर में प्रवेश मुद्दे पर बाबा डॉ अम्बरेडकर जी ने आन्दोलन किया तो उस आन्दोलन का संघ ने विरोध क्यों किया ?

(14) संघ ने हिन्दू समाज के हित में किया कोई एक कार्य बताये जिससे हिन्दू समाज का निम्न वर्ग का तबका लाभान्वित हुआ हो ?
No organisation has done more for empowering Dalits than RSS (Sangh Pariwar)

(15) संघ के लोग अपने आप को राष्ट्रवादी समझते है 1925 से 1947 के बीच वन्देमातरम् का नारा क्यों नही लगाया अंग्रेजो का इतना डर था क्या ?


(16) संघ / विहिप / और अन्य हिंदूवादी संघटन के प्रमुख दलित आदिवासी समूह से क्यों नही बने क्या ये हिन्दू नही है ?

संघ / विहिप / और अन्य हिंदूवादी संघटन के स्वयं सेएक और कार्यकर्ता जाती के आधार पर नहीं अपनी त्याग कबिलियित और सेवा के आधार पर ज़िम्मेवारी लेते हैं , कांग्रेस (गाँधी नेहरू माफिया) की तरह पारिवरिक सत्ता सुख भोगने के लिए नहीं होते, संघ के ज्यादातर प्रचारक तो ब्रह्मचर्य संन्यास लेते है   

(17) संघ ने 2002 तक आरएसएस मुख्यालय पर तिरंगा क्यों नही फहराया ?

संघ कार्यालय पर हमारा प्राचीन भगवा ध्वज फहराया जाता था , तिरंगा सरकारी कार्यालय पर सांविधानिक ओहदे वाले लोगो जैसे राष्ट्रपति प्रधानमंत्री मुख्यमंत्री इत्यादि द्वारा फहराया जाता है

(18) हिन्दू महासभा ने जिनाह की मुस्लिम लीग के साथ मिलकर बंगाल और सिंध में सरकार क्यो बनाई और क्यो श्यामाप्रसाद मुखर्जी बंगाल की सरकार में शामिल हुए और उप मुख्यमंत्री बने !
what was wrong with it

(19) संघ के आदर्श सावरकर ने जब पहली बार हिन्दू मुस्लिम के लिए अलग अलग देश की मांग की तो संघ ने आज तक उसकी इस मांग का विरोध क्यो नही किया ?
I wish they had pushed it for more strongly and avoied the bloody genocide enabled by Mohandas Gandhi , Nehu and Jinnah during partutin

20) अंग्रेजो से माफी मांगने वाले और स्वन्त्रता सेनानियों का विरोध करने वाले कायरकर को संघ वीर कैसे मान सकता है ?

(21) संघ और कायरकर ने आजाद हिन्द फौज और नेताजी सुभाष चन्द्र बोस का विरोध क्यो किया ? और क्यो दोनों संगठनों ने अंग्रेजो के लिए सेना में भर्ती के लिए कैम्प लगाए थे ?

आपसे आग्रह है कि प्रत्येक सवाल का क्रमबद्ध तरीके से जवाब दें।। संघियों की राष्ट्र भक्ति की असलियत अभी सामने आ जाएगी।।

जय हिंद जय भारत।।

Convergence of 5G, AI/ML & IOT leading change from Population Health to Personalized Precision Health

Resharing an article I wrote almost 1 year back. Today I was interviewed for a Podcast by Adam Torres of moneymatterstoptips.com about my company REN Ventures & my views on Healthtech. I mainly used the theme of this article

The Population Health concept represented a change in the focus from the individual-level, characteristic of most mainstream medicine but recent advances in technologies like AI, IOT, 5G are increasing the possibilities of Personalized Precision Health to complement Population Health Interventions. Let me share a  few examples.

“Using the tools of precision medicine, such as big data analytics and genomics, the goal of precision health is to predict, prevent and cure disease — precisely. Critically, in that order,” said Lloyd Minor, M.D., the Carl and Elizabeth Naumann Dean of the Stanford University School of Medicine in Palo Alto, California

Thanks to the spread of the internet to remotest parts of the world and advances in fast wireless internet 5G, we are approaching the “End of Geography”. A person sitting in  Africa or Asia can access healthcare from advanced centers like Stanford Health in USA. This has already happened in the knowledge economy where anyone with a smartphone has acess to all the knowledge of the world via Wikipedia, YouTube, Khan Academy, Coursera, MIT Open course, etc or e-commerce via Amazon, and payment platforms like Paypal, Stripe, Paytm besides current leaders like Visa, Mastercard.   Thanks to communication and collaboration platforms like Google SuiteSkype global teams are already collaborating with each other in education and e-commerce.
That level of collaboration is now possible and emerging in Healthcare too via TeleHealth backed by AI & Robotics. Patients can be seen remotely via Video and served via Robotics & AI. Their diagnostics measurements are available on the cloud to their care team which combined with AI tools to triage the case to remote health at their home/workplace or urgent care as needed. This will not only reduce the cost of care but also increase the quality of care. Regulators adapting fast to these changes CMS-loosens-medicare-advantage-telehealth
